The Kitchen, American Bistro is located in the historic Reid Murdoch building in River North. We focus on Real Food from American Farmers; by sourcing ingredients as fresh and local as possible and by building relationships with our purveyors. The preparations are simple, fresh, clean and focused. The menu features seasonal offerings that are crafted by our talented culinary team. The Kitchen, American Bistro features various signature items such as hand cut Garlic Fries, Tagliatelle Bolognese, Mussels and Sticky Toffee Pudding. The Kitchen, American Bistro opened in October 2014 and is part of The Kitchen family of restaurants co-founded by Hugo Matheson and Kimbal Musk. Matheson and Musk also co-founded a complimentary non-profit organization, The Kitchen Community, that has been an active presence in the Chicago community since 2012. The Kitchen Community has built Learning Gardens in over 200 schools across Chicago Public Schools reaching over 65,000 students with real food education.
